My living room is rather small compared to my Family Room, buy you asked specifically for the Living Room, which is more like my Parlor. It has a 1928 Edison C-2, a 1930 Edison R-7, an Edison Amberola 1A in oak, and a 1926 Columbia Viva-Tonal 800.

If you have a Viva-Tonal 800, and still have room for the others, then your parlor can't be THAT small LOL

1 - Victrola VV-X c.1913 - one of my first motor rebuilds in early 2013. I used axle grease for spring lubrication and the scent still wafts out when the lid is opened.

1 - Victrola VV-215 - rather non descript, but my wife thinks it's cool.

All except 2. I carried the VV-IX to the landing upstairs when a hurricane was threatening, and never found the time to bring it back down: the Europa is still awaiting completion, and also resides upstairs.

Form said "Invalid Entry" for me--I keep seven.

Victrola XIV (old reliable)
Victrola 2-65 Portable
Brunswick Panatrope (my 1900s iPods)
Victor III Talking Machine (loud enough to hear across the street)
Edison Standard Model A, 14" horn
Amberola 30 with broken trim and no grill (runs great)
Edison Standard Model E, nearly totaled

Living at home :roll: so I packed these machines into my bedroom. They look nice individually but it's starting to look kind of like a gramophone museum!

Four are on display and running currently. The two portables come out when I want to play Orthophonic records.
